2 Reasons To Treat Sleep Apnea Before 2018 Ends! [BLOG]

Night after night, millions of people are snoring loudly, their airways closing, and their breathing more and more labored under the pressure. In terrifying repeated cycles, breathing stops and the sleep apnea sufferer, knowingly or not, jerks awake suddenly gasping for air.

This condition not only deprives you of needed sleep, but sleep apnea leads to other daily symptoms that lower your quality of life and put your overall health at risk.

2 Reasons To Treat Sleep Apnea Before 2018 Ends!

Here are two good reasons to visit My Dentist in Plano to find solutions for sleep apnea before 2018 ends!

Reason 1 – To Save Your Health!

Sleep apnea is so much more than nightly snoring. While loud, chronic snoring can interfere with your sleep, your spouse’s sleep, and with your relationship overall, that’s only the start of this destructive disorder.


You might also experience:


*Chronic daily fatigue


*Sore Throat (especially in the morning)

*Lapses in concentration

*Decreased labido


*Issues with memory


It’s easy to understand why sleep apnea can be such a debilitating condition if gone untreated!

But there’s more bad news.

Sleep apnea is also dangerous, with studies showing a link between sleep apnea and increased risk for hypertension, heart disease, and stroke.

Your brain and body need adequate rest to function properly, so for your health’s sake, visit us soon to find some answers.

Reason 2 – To Save Money!

When you visit My Dentist in Plano with suspected sleep apnea, our team will take steps for a thorough evaluation, professional diagnosis, and effective treatment. We find that a customized oral appliance is a successful, and comfortable, form a treatment for our sleep apnea patients.

With an oral device, there’s no mask to wear over your face, no cumbersome hose, and no noisy machine to keep powered all night.


We begin with precise airway measurements gathered with a state-of-the-art cone beam CT scanner. Not only does this give us the most accurate look at your airways, but it’s covered by many medical insurance providers! If your evaluation and diagnosis are supported by use of a CT scan, your medical insurance may even cover a portion of the cost of a customized oral device.


That’s the other reason to visit us for sleep apnea treatment before 2018 ends! Most people lose helpful cost-saving insurance benefits at the end of the year that won’t roll over to 2019. That’s money you’ve invested all year long with no return!


We’ll be happy to work with your medical and dental insurance providers to determine which part of your sleep apnea evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment might be covered so you can keep more of your hard-earned money, get better sleep, and improve your overall health!


If you need more help making treatment more affordable, be sure to ask us about our diverse financing options, including CareCredit, GreenSky, and our own in-house discount plan that includes full coverage of preventive dental treatments, as well.

The Countdown Starts Now!

The end of the year is fast approaching, which means you could be losing some insurance benefits that may help curb the cost of sleep apnea treatment.

So for your health and your wallet, get to My Dentist in Plano to meet with Dr. Dickson. We’ll use advanced diagnostics and customized solutions to improve your sleep and your quality of life moving forward.
